Initial mapping of Invasive Species Compendium (ISC) into DwC for GIASIP.
The Invasive Species Compendium (ISC) is an encyclopaedic resource that brings together a wide range of different types of science-based information to support decision-making in invasive species management worldwide. It comprises detailed datasheets that have been written by experts, edited by an independent scientific organization, peer reviewed and enhanced with data from specialist organizations, images, maps, and a bibliographic database of abstracts and full text articles. New datasheets and data sets continue to be added, datasheets are reviewed and updated, and new scientific literature is included on a weekly basis.
The ISC has been resourced by a diverse international Consortium of government departments, non-governmental organizations and private companies.
